Pirate Barges were slow moving dropships for the Space Pirates. They often were used in raids on other worlds, such as the Space Pirate attack on Kerchu City on planet Jasindu. Pirate barges had a pair of cannons towards the front of the ship, but Captain Slag's Pirate Barge had a Fusion Cannon. Their armor protected them from all of Ratchet's weapons,. Ratchet often used these ships to reach other sections of the map. Often they had Buccaneers or Corsairs defending the ship from the furry Lombax. They also had planks to get on and off easier.
They appeared in the space pirate fleet on Merdegraw
